Oshawa (Wednesday, Mar 20, 2013) – Chevrolet is entering a Canadian and U.S. diesel automobile markets this summer with a 2.0L turbo-diesel chronicle of a hottest-selling sedan, a Cruze, featuring a cleanest diesel newcomer automobile engine General Motors has ever produced. Clean diesels beget during slightest 90 percent reduction Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and particulate emissions when compared to previous-generation diesels.

Built in Lordstown, Ohio, a 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel delivers a mixed of segment-leading facilities and efficiency. The Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel delivers an attention best 4.2 L/100km highway – softened than any non-hybrid newcomer automobile in Canada –  with energetic opening and a durability diesel owners value around a globe.

“The Cruze purify turbo diesel is a ideal further to an already endless Chevrolet product portfolio here in Canada,” pronounced Marc Comeau, clamp boss of sales, use offered for Chevrolet in Canada. “These new products and technologies accommodate a different needs of a business from coast-to-coast, either it’s pushing opposite city gas giveaway in a Chevy Volt or cross-country in a purify turbo diesel.”

The compress sedan’s new 2.0L turbo-diesel engine produces an SAE-certified 151 horsepower (113 kW) and 264 lb.-ft torque (358 Nm) with 0-96 km/h (60 mph) opening of 8.6 seconds, that is softened than a Volkswagen Jetta TDI involuntary and rival with German diesel cars that browbeat a North American market.

Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel’s emissions will accommodate U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) difficult Tier 2 Bin 5 emissions standards.

“Our tellurian engineering imagination was leveraged to rise a world-class, low-emissions engine to offer Canadian and U.S. business a automobile that’s both fun to expostulate and unsentimental during a pump,” pronounced Comeau. “The Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel is good positioned here in Canada and plays an critical purpose in Chevrolet’s four-cylinder lineup, and we trust a performance, torque and fuel potency will fast win over diesel devotees and compress automobile buyers.”

With a starting cost during $24,945, and a $1,550 end assign (excludes tax, title, license, and play fees) Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel comes with a six-speed involuntary transmission, four-wheel antilock front brakes, 3.20 final expostulate ratio, 140-amp alternator, 800-cold-cranking-amps battery, 17-inch amalgamate wheels, ultra-low-rolling insurgency all-season tires, back spoiler, Aero Performance Package and leather-appointed seating.

Other customary facilities embody Chevrolet’s infotainment complement MyLink, and a five-year/160,000-kilometre powertrain warranty.

“Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel is a many worldly newcomer automobile diesel engine GM has ever produced,” pronounced Jens Wartha, GM tellurian module manager and arch operative for a Cruze’s diesel engine. “We joined European diesel imagination with a genuine universe pushing preferences of North American consumers.”

In Europe, approximately 40 percent of Cruze models are diesel-powered.

Diesel details

Cruze’s 2.0L turbo-diesel is formed on proven pattern already used in European models. Collaborating with Italian and German engineering groups, GM’s diesel experts in a United States blending a engine to accommodate some-more difficult diesel glimmer standards and a wider operation of pushing conditions – including colder climates and aloft altitudes – for a United States and Canada.

“This Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel represents a new epoch in diesel opening for North American cars,” pronounced Jens Wartha, GM arch engineer. “We’ve blending a proven engine from Europe, a world’s diesel capital, and married it with a emissions-reducing record that was polished in a United States and Canada. It’s a good instance of how Chevrolet’s tellurian resources work harmoniously to furnish a right product during a right time and for a right market.”

Cruze’s new 2.0L turbo-diesel delivers an SAE-certified 151 horsepower (113 kW) and 264 lb.-ft. of torque (358 Nm). Peak torque is achieved during a low 2,000 rpm for a postulated feeling of energy on approach during roughly all speeds – quite when flitting or entering a turnpike onramp. The engine has an overboost underline able of augmenting torque to an estimated 280 lb.-ft. (380 Nm), for stronger acceleration durations of about 10 seconds.

“With a advantage of continual excellence in other markets, a 2.0L turbo-diesel comes to a United States and Canada with opening that will impress,” pronounced Mike Siegrist, partner arch engineer. “It is powerful, fit and clean. It will change perceptions of what a diesel automobile can be, while giving business another fuel fit choice in a Cruze lineup.”

Cruze models in a United States and Canada offer a 1.4L turbo, a 1.4L Eco indication and 1.8L naturally aspirated engine.

The 2.0L turbo-diesel engine provides softened fuel potency than a comparably sized gasoline engine by larger thermal efficiency, a aloft application ratio and an unthrottled explosion process. It facilities an iron cylinder retard and a fake steel crankshaft, any designed to mount adult to a larger cylinder pressures co-ordinate with a turbo-diesel engine.

A lightweight aluminum cylinder conduct and aluminum intake plural minister to a engine’s partially low weight of 408 pounds (185 kg), assisting a Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel broach a offset float with superb doing characteristics. Additional highlights include:

  • Dual beyond camshafts with 4 valves per cylinder and maintenance-free hydraulic lifters with low-friction roller-finger followers
  • Quiet belt-driven cams/valvetrain with high-strength belt element and tensioner rated for 100,000 miles
  • High-strength aluminum pistons with reinforced tip ring and constituent explosion play design
  • Central approach injection, with a injector positioned in a center of a cylinder, with a play in a piston portion as a explosion chamber. This enables a high 16.5:1 application ratio that enhances energy and explosion efficiency
  • Variable-swirl intake plural design, that optimizes atmosphere assign reduction suit in a cylinders for a more-efficient explosion that enhances opening and reduces emissions
  • Common-rail fuel complement with Piezo fuel injectors that emanate mixed injections per explosion for larger performance, explosion potency and quietness
  • Variable-nozzle turbocharger that broadens a engine’s torque curve, quite during low rpm, and supports larger high-rpm horsepower. It is mounted tighten to a empty opening of a engine for quicker “spool up” of a turbine and faster “light off” of a empty catalyst
  • Intercooling complement produces a cooler, denser atmosphere assign for larger power
  • Piston oil jets that assistance revoke attrition and optimize piston heat for larger opening and efficiency
  • Turbocharger orientation are oil-lubricated and cooled around an oil cooler
  • Variable-displacement oil siphon helps save fuel by optimizing a oil pressure, that reduces friction
  • Vacuum siphon designed for reduce engine friction
  • Ceramic heat plugs, that yield larger cold-start opening over required steel heat plugs (an engine oil heater is offering for cold climates)
  • B20 bio-diesel compatibility.

Quiet, well-spoken opening is enabled by a series of facilities on and around a engine. There are also sound-absorbing facilities combined to a Cruze, specific to a diesel model, including a singular lurch mat, hood sweeping and more.

A accurate empty gas recirculation control complement facilities a high-capacity cooler and bypass underline that capacitate a engine to accommodate United States and Canada’s tough diesel emissions regulations. There is also an empty after-treatment complement is identical to what is used on Chevrolet’s heavy-duty trucks and vans versed with a Duramax diesel, including a diesel particulate filter and urea injection, that helps make a 2.0L a cleanest diesel newcomer automobile engine ever from GM.

An approximately 4.5-gallon (17 liters) tank in a Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel binds adequate diesel emissions liquid to yield during slightest 16,000 kilometres (10,000 miles) of pushing between refills. The complement is also designed for servicing to coincide with oil changes, for larger convenience.
